Cupcake Challenge 44

Cupcake Challenge 44 was set by Jeanette and she chose a father's day theme with the added twist that you have to do more than just a card.

I got my thinking cap on and as I have very few appropriate male stamps and none which are really suitable for my dad, I decided that this week my project would not contain any form of stamping..... as I have none to choose from!!!

I decided I would make a card and gift combo and as my dad is a big fan of red wine, something with that seemed to be the obvious choice. I went in search of inspiration on SCS and found this fab tutorial here for a hanging treat box.

The box just easily slips over the top of the wine and in the little box on the front I have added two small bars of chocolate. It was so easy to make and so effective. It can also be adapted to other themes such as for a child using a bottle of juice and some sweets, or a sports fan using a bottle of water and some high energy snacks.

My matching card and hanging treat box have the same layout. The papers are from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated.

For the embossing I used my swiss dots folder and to try and brighten it up a bit, I finished off with a small jewel.

The rest of the DT have done some awesome projects, so check them out and join in with this week's challenge if you can. Thanks for looking x
